LAHORE - Jamaat-e-Islami chief Sirajul Haq has said India is creating war atmosphere to divert the world attention from its brutalities in Kashmir.

“In case of an attack, it will be facing a thousand times stronger Pakistan than in 1965,” the JI chief said while addressing the JI Youth festival under the aegis of the JI women wing at Aiwan e Iqbal yesterday. The festival was attended by good number of female students from schools, colleges and universities.

Siraj stressed upon the world community to take notice of India’s war plans and threats to Pakistan in order to save the region from the horrors of war. He warned that an India-Pakistan war now would not be confined to the two countries but its flames would spread in all directions. Therefore, he said, the world should not sit idle but should take practical steps to restrain India and prevent a war.

At the same time, he added, India should come out of war hysteria and hold meaningful talks on the Kashmir issue.

The senator said that India had been facing extremism since long. “Hindu fanatics are treating the minorities of Muslims, Sikhs and Christians worse than animals.

On the economic front, India is suffering from worst type of poverty and millions of its citizens are forced to go to sleep with empty bellies. Yet, Indian premier Modi is spitting venom against this country to conceal his failures,” he further said.

Sirajul Haq told the gathering that the JI would ensure implementation of the constitutional provisions related to the women rights. He also said that the rights of the minorities women must also be protected.

Naqvi praises PM

Islami Tehrik and Millat-e-Jafria Pakistan chief Allama Syed Sajid Ali Naqvi lauded Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif for taking strong stance on Kashmir issue during his address to the United Nations General Assembly.

In a statement issued here on Saturday he said "Silence of World Human Rights Organizations on Kashmir issue is questionable".

He added, more than 118 people are martyred and many others are injured during last 76 days in occupied Kashmir by Indian army. Indian forces are committing atrocities against women, children and youth every day and there is an urgent need to control them, he added.


He urged the world to play its due role for the people of Kashmir to get freedom as per the resolutions of UN security council.
